Better Business Starts with Better Business Education

As part of the IgnitEd community, IHMA members have access to a network of like-minded educators who are also shaping tomorrow’s business leaders. You have the ability to contribute your most successful pedagogical materials, such as course designs, cases, problem sets, and more, and you can also adopt tried and true resources from fellow scholars to strengthen your classroom teaching and improve learning outcomes.

Why Share Your Resources?

Demonstrate Engagement and Impact

With a global community at your fingertips, you can extend your reach far beyond a single classroom. Upon sharing, you'll have access to personalized metrics that you can leverage to demonstrate engagement and impact for tenure packets, accreditation reports, and annual performance reviews.

Take control of your intellectual property

We know ownership of your intellectual property is essential. All materials are protected under the Creative Commons License of your choosing, and you have the ability to update or remove resources at any time, so you'll always have control of your content.

Profit from your work or share for free

In less than five minutes, you can upload your pre-existing materials and choose from three flexible pricing options: fixed price, suggested price or free. With clean and simple profit sharing, you'll earn 50 percent of all purchases of your materials.
